Mohamed Ali Mosque, Cairo Reviews

  • Super beautiful sunset view like heaven. I was there in December 2017. Watching the sunset from the Citadel, you can easily tell the color difference of air up and down the cloud. The sun seems like floating on cappuccino, staying in the middle of sky. The sun and the city were separated by a layer of foamy like cloud. Dark pyramids under shinny sun makes the contrast. Just amazing. My wife and me were travelling to Cairo on our own for vacation for the first time. Most of the Egyptian we met were nice and friendly. Google map had been super helpful for my whole stay. P.S.:網劇冒險王衛斯理之支離人中,白素被催眠走到高處,就在這裏。

  • the first time you get inside this mosque, you will take a breath automatically while you see the big lamp hanging inside. The architecture are very classic and epic. Suck a throwback to the past and rethinking how they build it. The best spot to take photos is near exit gate of its mosque, where you can capture whole lamps and yourself with a good natural lighting. Do not forget to mind your step inside because some birds fly freely inside and they left "footprints" on the carpet.

  • It's very huge monument but like all in Cairo dusty not reconstructed very well. Atmosphere is there like in some nice pleasure meeting point because there is shadow so people rest there because citadel is on top of hill and you are expose to sun all the time. Architecture is very typical for Muslims. Cost 100 egp. Restaurant is there but strange nobody is there.

  • So fantastic historical place. Let's your memory travel and relax with the Islamic monuments

  • Ah well designed mosque with beautiful lights hanging around. Our guide mentioned the lights was more that 300 bulbs.
